Tyler Coburn’s publication I’m that angel (2011—) explores the conditions of how we work on and against the computer, narrated from the perspective of a “content farmer”: an online journalist contracted to generate articles based on words peaking in Google Trends.

Periodically, Coburn hold readings at data centers worldwide, including Google New York, Google Zurich and the infamous “Wikileaks Bunker” of Bahnhof Stockholm. These events give audiences access to the sites where “the cloud” is kept.

For this talk, Coburn will share images and stories from his tour; discuss the industrialization of online writing; and describe the role of data centers in the ever-expanding physical Internet.
